Giveaway

Hello Everyone!

For those who are following my blog, you may know that I am trying to "get serious" about my crafting and selling on Etsy.  Some days I'm more serious than others...whew! seriousness is hard work! I noticed all the people having fun with "giveaways" and I'm into fun so as soon as I can work out the details, I'm going to give it a shot.

This is what I learned about giveaways.
  • Sponsoring a giveaway is a wonderful way to promote and get new traffic to your site.
  • Give away something of value that represents your style.
  • Your giveaway item should be attractive as if you are selling it.
  • Don't make it hard for the readers to win your item.
  • Don't drag out the qualifying period.
  • Be clear about the rules.
  • Don't annoy your readers/followers by constantly harping them about your giveaway.
  • Reach out to other networks that promote giveaways.
  • Host your giveaway on another blog that has more traffic than your own blog.
  • Treat your winner like a customer and follow through.
I found great information on meylah.  Come back for my Giveaway.  Thanks!
